to a gun fight. (Too soon?)
As part of those remarks, the President said, "There are very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me—at least before I was a senator."
This comment is highly offensive to me. Shouldn't the President of the United States of America be able to construct a sentence that maintains a consistent tense? (See how that last sentence starts in the present tense and ends in the past tense? I know where you can get an entire college essay marked down a full letter grade for that single error.) A more correct statement would conclude with something like, "That happened to me before I was a senator."
And yes, Mr. President, if today I am out and about and I see you walking anywhere near my car, I WILL lock my doors. You are a politician and therefore cannot be trusted.
